Pray for Christians Recovering from Repeated Attacks on their Village

[277] prayers in [18] nations have been posted for Miango Christian Villagers.

Christians in a central Nigerian village are feeling betrayed after Muslim herdsmen attacked and killed several people and then attacked again after the funerals. Fulani herdsmen attacked Miango, a village in Jos state on March 8 around 10 p.m. A family on the edge of town lost three boys when the Fulani came in wielding machetes and shooting. Their 4-year-old cousin, Chanka, remains in critical care. That night, the Fulani also killed Iliya Isa, a former Muslim who had accepted Christ. Five days later, the villagers wore black and marched silently to the government in Jos in protest for not being protected by Nigerian security forces. After that, they buried the three boys who were killed, but on the way home to the village, they were attacked again by Fulani men. The evening before, Fulani attacked a home where villagers had gathered to mourn someone’s death and killed 27 people. Pray for the people of Miango, who are angry with both the Fulani and the Nigerian government. Pray for comfort for those who have lost family members. And praise God that the 4-year-old boy who was injured is improving.

I pray that those who are doing this would recognize they need you and surrender. I pray if they refuse to accept you, they would at least leave this village alone.

  • Father let these believers rejoice and be glad, for their reward in heaven is great; for in the same way
    the prophets were persecuted who were before them. Let them rejoice in their sufferings for your

    what is lacking in Christ's afflictions.
